Will Ferrell will travel to Wembley — if Leeds reach play-off final



HOLLYWOOD star Will Ferrell is making plans for his first trip to Wembley Stadium — if Leeds United reach the Championship play-off final.

The Sun on Sunday told last week how he had made a big investment in 49ers Enterprises — the US company which owns the club.

And a source said the Elf star, 56, is set to jet into London for the May 26 match where the winners go up to the Premier League — if Leeds are in it.

They play Norwich City in the semi-final, with the first leg today away at Carrow Road and the second leg at Elland Road on Thursday.

The source added: “Will has already been bitten by the football bug and he has been to a number of games in the UK before.

“But a trip to Wembley would be his first time at the stadium so he would love to come over if Leeds manage to get past Norwich, and experience the best that English football can offer.”

Will, who is worth around £127million, is already a co-owner of Los Angeles FC.

Leeds manager Daniel Farke this week welcomed news of Will’s involvement in the club.

He said: “We need each and every man; it’s always good!

“He’s a great actor and we are all happy that he is on board.

“It says a lot about the calibre of the club. We have many well known and popular supporters.

“We are grateful and thankful for that because we need each and every man.
